W3D2: Back and Bis!!!
After doing some pretty hecking heavy deads today (worked up to a single at 95%) I really focused on contracting key muscles on cable rows and felt the burn!!! Hope everyone had a great Monday!
Too busy. Words that have the power to control our lives, if we let them.
In my senior year of undergrad (left), I became too busy having fun and making sure I enjoyed life before med school. In my first year of Med school (middle), I was too busy trying to make sure I survived the amount of volume that was thrown our way.
And within 1 year, I didn't know who I was anymore. I looked in the mirror and wasn't happy with what I saw, with who I had become. My self esteem was low. My motivation was low.
I'm not sure what it was exactly. But one day I decided I wanted a change, a transformation. I was tired of looking at this girl in the mirror and being so unhappy. I wanted my confidence and my healthy life back. No more sweets when I was bored, no more drive thrus every night after studying, no more allowing myself to feel this way when I knew I had the power to change it.
And with A LOT of hard work, determination, self discipline, and perseverance, I'm now in my 4th and final year of Med school (right). I'm busy continuing this lifestyle I chose 2 1/2 years ago. I'm busy learning to love myself and every curve on my body. Im busy continuing to balance everything in my life. I'm busy sharing my story and reaching out to others so they can experience their own transformation.
Life is so much about the choices we make. We're all busy in our own way. I spent 14 hours a day studying most days during my second year of Med school (even busier than my first year). But I no longer used the excuse of being too busy. I MADE the time to better myself, to do something for me. I squeezed in a 30 or 45 minute workout when I got home from the library at 5, ate my meal prep, then headed back to the library at 7 for the rest of the evening (on average). We have the power to control who we are, how we feel, and what we do. It took me a little while to realize that I was in control. That I didn't have to let the many hours dedicated to school, the choices of those around me, or my own negative thoughts choose my life. I had the power all along to make my own choices to better myself. What will you do with that power?
Today was one of those stereotypical Mondays. It was rainy🌧, cold, and I was soaked by the time I got back to my room from class🙃 But did I let that affect me, NO, well maybe a little. My motivation to go the gym was lower than usual (mainly due to the fact that I was freezing😬 and didn't want to change). But I knew I would feel 10x better after I got in my lift. And guess what, I did😎 Its crazy that going to the gym can improve your outlook on the day by so much! I felt so much better and 3763628x stronger😉💪🏼 If your Monday sucked, oh well. Don't let that be the outlook you have for the rest of the week. Tomorrow's a new a new day full of new opportunities. Keep a positive mindset and you will be able to handle anything life throws at you😊
Another GREAT year of Flag Football is in the bag. Thanks to all of the Varsity Players and the coaching staff that helped to make this an amazing opportunity for our youth!
Topping it off tonight on the game field under the lights and then signatures from the players was definitely a highlight!
Thanks again for your time and dedication to helping mold the upcoming Orab Football 🏈 players! #FOREVERORABS
